Has anybody ever cleaned the windows on a skysSwear word!er? If not what is the tallest building you have ever cleaned. I think this would probably have more to with insurance reasons than anything else because I'm sure it is expensive to go over two stories. But you might make the movies if you had a business that got that high in the sky and those window cleaners get all the girls. HaHa!

I was cleaning a 25 storey block of flats using a knotted rope, but dropped my squeegee and had to parachute down......

 

It's all a fuzzy memory now. :-)

 

seriously - I have cleaned 5 stories by pole - 66ft, 8 floors by cherry picker, and 10 floors by abseil.

 

Now though - don't clean higher than 3rd, as I have plenty of work to be picky.

 

Would say that prolonged work with the big pole left me going to the chiropracter regularly.

 

Used to do a bit of rock climbing, so loved to abseil - but I can earn more doing my regular work.
